Pasifika Futures activate immediate Lockdown support for Pacific families

As we continue to live in this “New Norm” and adjust our lives to different Alert Levels, the Pasifika Medical Association (PMA) through Pasifika Futures (PFL) – the Whānau Ora agency for Pacific families – remains resolute and active in its support of Pacific families. 

Pasifika Futures Director of Partnerships, Mr Craig Sionetuato advises that immediate support is available to Pacific families who need assistance during this current Alert Level 4 lockdown.

“We’ve increased investment with our Whānau Ora partners as they have strong relationships with their various communities,” he says. 

PFL partners providing immediate support for Pacific families include; The Fono, Tongan Health Society Inc, Mt Wellington Integrated Health Care, The Village Community Service Trust, Taeaomanino Trust, K’aute Pasifika and Etu Pasifika.

Details of PFL partners are outlined below and support offered will include food, utility support and those affected by a loss of income.

“If you’re a Pacific individual or family and you’re needing urgent food or utility support, please reach out to one of our identified partners as the process for receiving assistance is fast and efficient. The last thing we want is for people to be out there and to go without for a week.”
